Dear Dan and other friends,
Have supporting of PPPoE over arbitrary interfaces been implemented? Can I update the NM code by myself? Which module must I update?
Alternatively, if the NM doesn't gray out wired connections even if no wire is connected, the problem may be solved, I think. Is there any way to do so?
Thanks a lot,
